Published Nov 28, 2017In a since deleted tweet from 2012, Frank Ocean promised us "5 albums before 30," and for fans keeping track, they'll have noted that the singer hit the milestone age back on October 28 — with only four albums under his belt.
Last night (November 27), however, Ocean posted a short but sweet message on Tumblr, insinuating that a fifth album has indeed been finished for a while.
"I made the album before 30," he wrote. "I just ain't put that bitch out!" He attributed the claim to "quotes from an interview I haven't given."
There's not really any other information about the alleged fifth album or when we might actually get to hear it, but when his next album does arrive, it will mark the follow-up to 2016's back-to-back releases Endless and Blonde.
Since then, he's also released one-off track like "Chanel," "Lens," and "Biking," and guested on cuts by A$AP Mob and Calvin Harris.
In addition to his latest musical offerings, Ocean recently kicked off the holiday shopping season with a couple of exclusive offerings, including a Worldnet hoodie for Black Friday, as well as a physical release for Endless on CD, DVD, VHS and vinyl for Cyber Monday.
